State House candidate Dan McGuire and his wife Carol moved to New Hampshire in 2005 as part of the Free State Project. McGuire has demonstrated considerable ties to the Free State Project, including:
Dan McGuire and his wife Carol signed the early mover pledge, which was aimed at getting 1,000 Free Staters to move to New Hampshire early to establish a network for other Free Staters to follow in later years. The majority of FSP participants will not move until 20,000 individuals have signed on for the Free State Project. [Free State Project. First 1,000 Pledge. 2003-2006]
Prior to moving to New Hampshire the McGuire’s coordinated recruiting events for the Free State Project in the Pacific Northwest. Dan and Carol were part of a major recruiting drive to get likeminded people to join the FSP and move to New Hampshire. [Free State Project Forum. Pacific Northwest — OR, WA. 2004]
As elected officials, the McGuire’s have supported extreme ideas in line with the Free State Project worldview, including voting to eliminate the State’s Department of Education, voting to allow felons access to deadly weapons, and sponsoring and voting for legislation that would abolish the N.H Hampshire Supreme Court’s right to review whether laws are Constitutional.

Why is Dan McGuire’s FSP Affiliation Important?
The ultra-extreme Free State Project voted on a state to move 20,000 people to, with the stated purpose to take over state government and dismantle it. The Free State Project seeks to create a libertarian “utopia” void of public infrastructure and common laws, and to use the power of numbers to dramatically change New Hampshire – even threatening secession from the rest of the country. Members like Dan McGuire are actively working to help the Free State Project fulfill those goals.
 “Once we’ve taken over the state government, we can slash state and local budgets, which make up a sizeable proportion of the tax and regulatory burden we face every day. Furthermore, we can eliminate substantial federal interference by refusing to take highway funds and the strings attached to them. Once we’ve accomplished these things, we can bargain with the national government over reducing the role of the national government in our state. We can use the threat of secession as leverage to do this.” [Announcement: The Free State Project by Founder Jason Sorens]
